Pondering the Scriptures Sunday #16

Continuing February's theme of love.  This week let's take a look at Proverbs 7:2, taking note the phrase I underlined:
  • "Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye."
This phrase is a commonly used expression of endearment.  Now we see that it derives from the Old Testament.  Note the word apple refers to the pupil of the eye and not the fruit.  So in this particular verse, the idiom alludes that just as the eye is a sensitive organ needing protection and care, so is the law precious and worthy of protection.
